    EM5 manual focus assist x10 is too much, can you reduce the magnification?

    Yes, the dial will give you a choice of 2x 5x 7x or 10x (I think that's right). I agree; 10x is almost always too much.

    What "dial" are we talking about here?? I can't get any of my dials to magnify!!! The only option I see is X2 that I have programmed into my fn2 button.
